Description: Description: C:\TC\~srgp\new\bluehunt.jpg

Do You Know that you can search just the Obituaries on the site by using the three County Specific Obituary selections in the Partitioned search engine at the bottom of the Current What's New Page? You can narrow your search by including a key word in the cemetery name or a township name in addition to the surname you search. Then select the Find All Words option.
You'll also find obituary and other newspaper clippings using Clippings partition. Additional clippings can be found in the Birth, Marriage, and some other partitions. 

Reading a series of obituaries from a single cemetery, as they are presented here, is like reading the multi-generational history of a community. These people were the local populace at a particular time. The people buried here knew each other, were neighbors, relatives and school mates. They attended church together and engaged in "trade" or business.  All people are listed in alphabetic order by surname at BIRTH. Women identified by a married alias only and  for whom a birth surname can not be identified, are listed on the last page for the cemetery's obituaries.

 

SRGP ID Added in parentheses by Joyce M .Tice if included in her Sullivan-Rutland Genealogy Project. If you are researching or descended from any of those so designated, it is requested that you share your research with Joycs's SRGP if you have not already done so. That is the price I ask for making this site available. It is your opportunity to share in the cost of creating this site and reward Joyce just a tad for making this enormous body of resource available to you. It is a way to pay your dues in a small way for use of this site. Please reference the SRGP ID and the page you found this on the site, when you write to me. For women listed under a married alias, I have provided her real name, if I know it.

HALL, MR. William. W. (SRGP 10118)
 Last Friday forenoon Mr. Wm. W. Hall, a man about fifty-five years of age, a resident of Rutland township, told his wife that he did not feel well as usual and he would not milk, but would go to the barn and feed the horses; so she went and milked the cow, then went into the house and not finding Mr. Hall, went back over to her son’s who lives just a few rods away, and asked him if he was there.  As he was not, Jay McClune, who was at L. Hall’s went to the barn; and looking through a crack, saw Mr. Hall hanging by the neck.  Upon examination it was found that he had meant to make sure work, he had bought a new rope and strapped it around a beam, had also got a ladder strapped to the beam a few feet away in such a manner that he could not get to the ladder again after the rope was put around his neck.  His hat and cane lay on the floor near by.  He has threatened to kill himself several times, but no one thought he would do it.  Funeral services were held Sunday at the Baptist Church, Rev. G. W. Morcey officiating.  About six hundred people attended the funeral.  Mr. Hall’s mind has been unsettled for some time on account of his poor health and the condition of his daughter, who has been sick a long time.  The family are terribly afflicted and have the sincere sympathy of all.

JULIA ANN HARDING (SRGP 08001). Julia Ann Harding was born in Sullivan township near where Orrin Smith now resides, Nov. 16, 1831. She was the daughter of Joseph M. and Parmelia M. Harding, her father being one of the pioneers of Sullivan, coming to Tioga county from Vermont about 1816, a few months previous to Samuel Harding, his father, who lived and died on the farm now owned by Orrin Smith, his grandson. When Julia was about 10 years of age Joseph M. Harding removed to the State of Ohio with his own conveyance , long before there was any railroad from here to that state, and remained three years , then returning by way of Williamsport, crossing the Allegheny mountains with a pair of oxen and one horse during that memorable snow storm of the 5th of October, when snow fell to a depth of about two feet, breaking down and bending many of the forest trees while apples, potatoes, buckwheat and corn were yet mostly ungathered. He then settled on the farm where Julia recently died. She was the eldest of a family of thirteen children, seven of whom survive her, viz.: E. A. Harding, of Harbor Springs, Mich.; Darwin Harding of Nelson, Pa.; Dr. J. M. Harding, of Oil City, Pa.; I. N. Harding of Whitney, Neb.; Mrs. Wm. J. Crane of Arlington, Neb.; Dr. L. D. Harding of Goshen, Ind., and the writer. She was married Jan. 1, 1842, to Roswell Crippen, who is left to mourn her loss. They had one son, Chauncey Crippen, who died in infancy. Julia was converted at the age of 10 years and hers was a very clear experience. She was an invalid about 25 years, and during all those long years bore her infirmities with great patience and resignation, a great share of the time deprived of the privilege of attending church: but her heart was there. Reuben Garrison lived with them from the time he was 8 years of age until reaching 16; he died a few years ago in Williamsport. Wm. H. Loomis, now of Brooklyn, N. Y., also lived with them from the time he was 8 until he was 16. In her sickness she felt to say, "Thy will be done; not mine."

Sister, thou wast mild and lovely, Gentle as the summer breeze, Pleasant as the air of evening, When it floats among the trees.

Peaceful be thy silent slumber, Peaceful in the grave so low, Thou no more will join our number, Thou no more our songs shall know.

Dearest sister, thou has left us; Here thy loss we deeply feel, But 'tis God that hast bereft us, He can still our sorrows heal.

Yet again we hope to greet thee, When the day of life is fled, Thee in heaven with joy to greet thee Where no farewell is said.J.H

Beautiful toiler, thy work all done,
Beautiful soul into glory gone;
Beautiful life with is crown now won.
God giveth thee rest.
Rest from all sorrow and watching and fears,
Rest from all toilin, sorrow and tears,
Rest through God’s endless and wonderful years;
At home with the blest.

Beautiful spirit, free from all stain,
Our’s is the heartache, sorrow and pain;
Thine is the glory and infinite gain.
Thy slumber sweet.
Peace on thy brow and eyelids so calm,
Peace in thy heart ‘neath the white folded palm,
Peace dropping down like a wonderful balm—
From head to thy feet.

"It was so sudden," our ashen lips said,
How we shall miss him, the beautiful dead."
"Who take the place of our precious ones fled?"
But God knoweth best.
We know He watches the sparrows that fall,
Hears the sad cry of grieved hearts that call;
Friends and loved ones, He loveth them all—
We can trust for the rest.
